in the foreign service, he won friends to the united states in far-flung places. he made those people's hopes his own. during the revolution in libya, he risked his life to help protect the libyan people from a tyrant. he gave his life helping them build a better country. people loved to work with him. as he rose through the ranks, they loved to work forehand. he was known not only for his courage, but for his smile. goofy, but contagious. for his sense of fun and that california cool. in the days since the attack, so many libyans, including the ambassador, who is with us today, have expressed their sorrow and solidarity. one young woman, her head covered and her eyes haunted with sadness, held up a handwritten sign that said "thugs and killers do not represent a benghazi or islam." the president of the palestinian authority, who worked closely with chris sent me a letter of remembering his energy and integrity and deploring "an act of ugly terror." many others from across the middle east and africa have offered similar sentiments. this has been a difficult week for the state department's and for
to where they were, we were in belt largest expansion in the history of the united states. fix medicare. allow negotiations for prescription drugs. that will save $240 billion over 10 years, and finally, takeaway subsidies from the big oil companies. they are very profitable, but they do not need our help. what you end up with then is not a $1 trillion problem. you end up with a problem in the $200 billion range. raising the ceiling, a default for the nation. he spoke out against the fairfax chamber and other chambers, and now he is saying, "wait a minute. we cannot make cuts." when he is running as the guy who wants to make cuts. he has more sides then a rubik cube. >> what your so-called plan would do to jobs. i think you should be taking into account what the impact is on jobs, and our economy, which is a major, major concern. you talked about bob mcdonnell and eric cantor. what they did was pass a measure that would avert these devastating cuts to our national defense and jobs in virginia. what has this than that done? absolutely nothing. they have not passed a budget in 3.5 years.
people. because the senate bill was inclusive and every woman member , republican, of the united states senate voted for it. everyone. that was the difference between the two bills. those who were included and a more specific group that are now included, which we think they ought to be, but we also think there aren't people include who had need to be. with all due respect i think my characterization was absolutely accurate. but it's interesting, mr. speaker, that we still haven't eabed the question -- answered the question. we tend to want to talk about other things. 98% of americans should not get a tax increase on january 1 that are making less than $250,000 individually as a family. i think we agree on that. mr. speaker, now i haven't heard that we don't agree on that but we agree on that which means there are 2% on which we do not agree. and that bill has not been brought to the floor that passed the united states senate dealing with that 98%. or 97% of small business. now, mr. speaker, it seems to me if we have agreement on 98% and the president of the united states will sign that
privilege as far as being a citizen of the united states to vote and be part of the process. that is all i have to say. host: frank newport, it sounded like from the comments last night by mitt romney that they were really focusing on from here on out approaching voters who had voted for obama in 2008 and looking to lure them to the romney campaign. is there any way that gallup will be checking that attempt? guest: absolutely straight -- absolutely. we track daily. for a republican to win, they have to pull back in some of those voters. if the same scenario happens this year that unfolded in 2008, obama is going to win again. republicans have two goals -- one is to activate the core republican voters and get them to turn out, which is easier for republicans and democrats, because republicans are more likely to vote. they have characteristics like age and education that make them more likely to vote. the second task is to pull down at 7% margin that obama had over mccain, so they have to come in to become a convert some of those people who went for obama to go to romney, or they were going
in the united states, but done in france which is a modern labor market where i think there are some lessons. the code-talkers actually convinced the french government to do something i hope we can convince our -- co-authors actually convince the french government to do something i hope we can convince our government to do, which is to experiment with widespread unemployment services programs and look at what the effects on the labor market are not just by randomizing an individual having access to the program, but breaking france up into different geographic areas of labor markets and providing 100% of the people access in some areas, in some areas , in some areas 55%, some areas 25%. if you do that randomly, on average, if you're in an area where a lot of other people use this program, does that have a negative effect on you? what they found is in tight labor markets, basically the programs really helped people get into jobs more quickly. when the labor market is weak, is largely a game of musical chairs. one person getting a job makes another person have a more difficult time. thinking ab
. second term as president of the united states of america. their sales pitch at their convention down in florida. >> boo! vote. i have to say, it was something despite all the challenges we face in this new century, we saw agenda out of last century. you might as well have watched it on black-and-white tv with some rabbit ears. it should have been on nick at nite. if you did not dvr it, let me give you a basic recap of what they said. good the economy is bad. it is all obama's fault, and governor romney has the secret to creating jobs and growing the economy. they spent the most time on me. they were talking about me, and there was a lot of hard truths nobody bothered to tell you what romney had his chance to let you creation, he did not offer you a single new idea. policies that have been sticking it to the middle class four years, and after the convention governor romney came here to ohio, and he said he is going to be the coach that leads america to a winning season. playbook. on first down, he hikes taxes by family with kids in order to pay roughness to me.

're the president of the united states, that has to be good news. these people have gotten a lot of messages out of the last week, that it was not like now last week was something no one had seen. for people it created a difficulty in terms of mitt romney, and then at the end you have got another thread of women's health issues and all of those things, so there are a whole bunch of things they told you, but then there were telling you another story, which is the story of the you wish barack obama listened? i wish he was not that certain. now they want a certain humility, a sense of pushing people common so you have got both sides, and the other thing that fascinated me is the strength of the two women. clearly when we went around the room and talked about michelle obama you could feel the room light up and how unbelievably respected and effective she was, but then we got to the film, all of a sudden you recognize that enron they clearly represents inner strength, that she brings realism. she did everything her husband has not done and has not been able to get to. >> i think if you voted on the 2
. that's important. because that distinguishes him from the united states senate which also has a legal obligation to submit a budget and has refused to do so for the last three years. you wonder why it is we can't come together on funding priorities, madam speaker, three years the senate has said we are not going to tell you what we are interested in doing. we are not going to provide you with any ideas. and because we won't move it, the house product can't move, the president doesn't have anything to work with, and you see the kind of economic turmoil that we are in today. but the president to his credit has submitted a budget each and every year with his priorities. this is the budget he submitted for 2012. this was just last february, the law required it. he complied with it. but he's running for re-election and he's got his fingers on the pulse of the american people, but what they need and what they desire and what they want from the united states government, all tuned towards an election in november anti-budget that he submitted -- and the budget that he submitted raidses taxes a
%. in nebraska, our rate is 4%. we have created jobs in the state. that is what we need to do in the united states as well. i have a jobs plan. we need to back government away from small business, need to have government reduce regulations that are such a burden on businesses so they can create jobs. we need to reform the tax code. we need to reduce energy costs. we need to help small businesses to create those opportunities. >> senator kerrey, you have 30 seconds. >> senator fischer signed a pledge that would require you should pay the same taxes employees pay. under your balanced budget, unemployment would double. i have examined the amendment, and it would double unemployment. >> i disagree. with regard to the buffet rule, if you are going to tax every millionaire, that can run the government for 17 hours. let's look for businesses to create jobs and make opportunities in the state, and we can do it by reducing regulations, by having an energy plan, by repealing "obamacare." >> the next question. >> a question in this cycle is, are we better at today than we were four years ago? are we?
. maybe they'll want to be friends. the proof is in. the approval rating of the united states in those muslim countries where we have been is -- was 33%, which was terrible under president bush in 2008. and now under this president we see the report last week it's now 15% under this guy who was going to be our president and the muslim countries would love us. they don't. because in muslim countries the real people, the people that we really need to reach out to, not the leaders that hate us, but the real people, they respect a country who understands who is the enemy and who is their friend. they have no respect for a country that tries to do -- it would be the equivalent of a child, and i have been there on the schoolyard, picked on by bullies, i was little growing up, but i can tell you i had my nose bloodied many a time, you don't win respect nor love from a bully by giving your lunch money or begging him to be nice to you. not only do they not love you, not respect you, they gain even more contempt for you. and that's what we are seeing happen. this president's trying to buy affect
, and there are almost no indicators that a former president of the united states lived in this house. it is not like here is president bush in his flight suit. there is one picture, the what of all the president's in the office. i said to her, and you miss the white house? gigots -- she goes -- are you kidding me? >> for me, having not just about first ladies, but they all have potential first ladies. the stories that always tend to stick with me had to be that it is much harder for the family. even if you are an experienced political family, it is hard. we all take things that happen to our families and i choose to be in this business. if somebody goes on my page and doesn't like an interview i did, that is part of my life since i started in journalism. some people like what you say and some people don't. but my family takes it very personally. it is hard for them to see that somebody said something critical of me. magnify that for being on the political stage and often, the best conversations i have had with potential first lady's are really to the heart of what they think about. the psychology of
of ronald reagan. >> bush no. 2's flexibility. ability to light a fire under the people of the united states. >> the ability to make himself look newble. >> rec and's ability to be a perceived forced to be -- reagan's ability to be perceived as a force to be reckoned with. >> the ability to persevere. >> there are ten qualities from reagan i would like to assign to him. consistency. shoot from the hip to give him less stiffness. >> and tell me something. if you could have -- get him to answer one question that would help you feel more confident about voting, what is the question you would want to ask mitt romney? let me get some of the others. what you -- what would you want to tell from mitt romney that would help you, maybe i could support him? >> i would like to see something that resembles a business plan. >> that he has a backup plan. just to do something but cannot get it passed congress, how're you going to do it? >> >> i would like to know his details on his tax reform plan. >> i am with her on that one. that see a plan and how they think is going to work. >> same thing. the plan but
, everyone. there are nearly 40 of our jobs bills sitting in the united states senate. all part of our plan for american job creators that we have been working on all year. these bills cut red tape, remove government barriers that make it harder for small businesses to hire new workers. there are bills to address our debt, expand american energy production and approved projects like the keystone pipeline. there are bills that stop the present's tax hike and fix the tax code. to bring more jobs home from overseas. these are good ideas, all passed with bipartisan support here in the house. president obama will not work with us to find common ground or urged senate democrats to take action. why? it is because democrats have failed to lead. they failed to lead on jobs. the unemployment rate has been over 8% for 43 consecutive months. they failed to lead on energy. everything from gasoline prices to groceries will cost more today. the president's defense suppression -- sequestration threatens our national security and his tax hikes threatens some 700,000 jobs and our country. while democrats hav
is not going to be one bit -- the london olympics. you did not win that. united states open, it is either about the golf competition or the president's immigration policy. there we go. that was like a boo-hiss on that one. this is back when there were calling each other names. i think they should get back to the fictitious platitudes voters care about. in the poll vault -- it says "jobs" on there. in favor of a mitt romney and -- this is when george bush came out in favor of mitt romney and endorsed mitt romney. now if things do not go well in november, i cannot blame bush. mars mission, why are we spending $2.5 billion on mars when we could be spending it to dig up dirt on mitt romney. with the race tightening, some say you should look for another running mate. i could never do that to barack.
